My Actual Day Off

Last Thursday I had a "day off" for Mother's Day.  There wasn't really anything specific that I was wanting to do, so I just got ready and headed out. 

First I stopped at Salvation Army.  They usually have a few cute things for little girls and they're the cheapest thrift store in town that I know of, so I picked up a few things for Anna. 

Second I went to Old Navy.  Mainly, I was on the hunt for an outfit for Anna for family pictures.  I found a couple of cute things there, but nothing that was simply perfect for the pictures.  I ended up buying a pair of jeans for myself for $12 and a pair of striped pants for Anna for 97¢. 

Third I made my way to Target.  I found a tan shirt and flowered skirt for Anna there.  The skirt featured the same red as my dress so it was perfect.  I bought those and a box of strawberry fruit snacks then headed out.

Fourth I stopped by Taco Bell and picked up a double decker and a crunchy taco...both without lettuce.

Fifth I drove to Wal-Mart.  I ate my double decker in the car before going in.  Our freon needs to be recharged, but we can't do it ourselves since the car is a '94, so it was pretty toasty in there.  After I ate I got some more shopping done.  My list consisted on diapers, hand soap, lunch for Miles, straws, and cereal.  You know, the typical things you buy on a day off, ha! 

I had planned on stopping by Jesse James Antique Mall, but I had nothing specific I wanted there, and I was running out of time, so I headed home.  Anna was sleeping when I got home, but after about an hour I went upstairs to see her.  We played on the bed for a while, then I brought her downstairs.  After a bit Miles packed her up and took her to my mom's so he could go to work.  Anna hadn't been feeling great last week, so I was worried she'd be a bit cranky.  I texted my mom and told her that if Anna wasn't agreeable it'd be fine to bring to over to me.  Around 9:30 I got a call from her and I could hear Anna in the background just crying and saying, "Mama!  Maaamaa!"  Talk about heart breaking!  Needless to say, my mom and dad brought Anna over.  She was happy to be home.

While Anna was over with my parents I edited some photos, did some laundry, and washed the dishes.  So, all in all it was a pretty good day off.  I've realized that I just like my baby too much to be away from her for that long.  We're friends!

Anna was not excited to be taking pictures.
Now I should wash some dishes.  Bleh.  Dishes are simply the worst.
